Project Delivery:

Led by Grange’s Adam Leak, the Delta site team engaged expert marine and civil engineering design consultants to support our project management team and commissioned highly specialised sub contractors to meet and exceed our client’s expectations. Critical to our success was a successful stakeholder engagement plan involving multiple State and Local government departments and agencies, as well as local community and residential groups. Supply of 14,000t of rock and individual placement of armour rock to construct the 400m long rock (sea) wall and 600m water front ‘promenade’ connecting Rippleside and St Helens beaches. 65m extension of the existing box culvert storm water into Corio Bay, including a custom designed in situ waste management process for excavation and transport of contaminated marine sediment. Import and placement of 7,500 cubic metres of sand to renourish and re-shape Rippleside beach – extending 20m into Corio Bay with a 1-in-10 gradient beneath the surface to the natural seabed. Design and construction of a timber groyne to support and protect the new revitalised shoreline. Full compliance with strict environmental management condition – nil marine or land impacts.
